My wife has attended just one mediation meeting. Now she says she wants to withdraw from mediation ''as it won''t do any good'' and gone back to her solicitor. I thought the meeting went well myself.
Trouble is, the documents she disclosed in the first session look dodgy to me. Is there any way I can request, perhaps via some court order or other, that her bank discloses her statements directly to me or to my solicitor, rather than via herself ?
If you do end up in court you both have to complete form E and provide a years worth of bank statements and credit card statements then swear its all true and honest, but yes people do lie and try and deceive, what you can`t do is provide dodgy statements though.
The statements must come from the bank, if they are printed copies and you think forged you can question them in court, the judge can order originals in fact the judge can order lots of things, they are not to be messed with, if you read form E it says basically lie and you can do time.
To provide evidential material in court with a judge would be in the words of a US cartoon figure "dummer than spit".
